Diet queen Oprah Winfrey has admitted that she had taken a leaf out of Fern Britton's book and had a gastric band fitted - just a week after completing a 21-day vegan detox.
The chat-shot host,54, has yo-yoed from 10st 2lbs to 17 stone and visited every size inbetween. Labelled a diet expet by fans, it was thought she would stay on diets and not cheat.
A die-hard super-fan (of Oprah, not the film starring Bruce Willis), said, 'Oprahs diets rule my life. Now how do I know she actually followed them? I've lost all my faith in her.'
Fern Britton commented, 'Its nice for me not to be the only one. I'm thinking of getting another, and maybe one for my cat.'
